Invisalign® clear orthodontic aligners are spectacular! They are metal-free and designed from a patented thermoplastic material to ensure a tight fit that is guaranteed to produce results, while at the same time being safer for your teeth and gums than metal brackets and wires that can easily break and fracture. For more information, take the following true/false quiz to see how Invisalign stacks up:

TRUE or FALSE: Some foods and snacks are verboten with Invisalign.
– False, you do not have to transform your diet, and can remove your aligners before every meal.

TRUE or FALSE: Invisalign aligners are invisible.
– This is partially true because Invisalign aligners are partially indistinguishable from your natural teeth. If they were completely invisible, it would VERY difficult to discover them every time you had to put them in!

TRUE or FALSE: A single set of Invisalign can be shared among individuals with misalignment issues.
– This is false. Each pair of Invisalign aligners is planned and crafted for each patient’s specific dental profile to ensure the best possible treatment. Also, never swap mouth utensils, including toothbrushes, as this can easily lead to contamination.
